AMONG THE PEOPLE OF CATHAY Photograph by Robert F. Fitch THESE CANTON CRAFT HAVE NURSERY COMPARTMENTS During bad weather the mats rolled up on deck will be spread over the boat. In the center is a large earthen jar which ordinarily contains hot water for tea and cooking. The lattice work in the rear enables a child to play without danger of falling into the stream. Modern kerosene lamps lend a touch of the Occident to these unique craft.
